This is the best translation of the exact statement I can offer:
'We have not been able to analyze everything the pilots said after recovering the voice recorder of the crashed Germanwings plane."

We should be able to analyze and time-stamp everything recorded in the cockpit, but it may take a couple of days.

This is what Rémi Jouty, Director BEA (Bureau d'Enquêtes et d'Analyses pour la sécurité de l'aviation civile) explained today.

He did not confirm to have located the second part of the black box containing all technical data.

He had no reason why the plane started a decent and crashed with full speed in the French mountain region. French civil aviation professionals tried to contact the pilots after they noticed the unexpected decent without success.

When asked if they were be able to recognize the voice of pilots after the decent started, he refused to respond.

The speed of descent was about 3,500ft per minute, he says. There is a question about rumours of lithium in the cargo. Jouty says such questions have to be investigated.

When asked about a possible a terror attack, he also refused to respond.
